Mutton Pepper Masala, today we will learn how to prepare an easy south indian style mutton pepper masala with step by step photographs. Aatu kari thokku is prepared using black pepper, cumin powder and coriander powder.
This is the best mutton pepper masala I can guarantee which tastes even better than the restaurant style mutton masala. This is my mom’s recipe and we just love this kari thokku with plain cooked rice. Just mix the thokku with rice and enjoy its heavenly taste. You can also serve mutton pepper masala with rasam rice. This is basically tamilnadu style mutton masala recipe. The same recipe can be used to prepare aatu eral masala (mutton liver pepper masala) or chicken pepper masala. In the recipe, I have used 250 gms mutton and 100 gms mutton liver.
The recipe is very simple. All you need is a pressure cooker to save some cooking time. Or you can cook it in a pan too but mutton takes more time to cook. The recipe requires no masala grinding. Mutton is cooked with onion, ginger garlic paste, pepper, cumin, coriander powder and garam masala. I have not added tomato. It is optional. Whenever down with flu, we crave for this pepper masala 🙂 This is thick gravy type recipe. If you want it watery, then adjust the volume of water added. If you find it too spicy, then sprinkle lemon juice.
